Grilled Eggs in Sweet Peppers

Yield: Makes: 4 servings

Prep Time: Prep Time: 7 minutes

Cook Time: Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

• 4 medium sweet peppers (any colour), about 3-1/2 to 4 inches (9 to 10 cm) tall, with stems
• 8 eggs
• 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded medium Cheddar cheese
• 4 tsp (20 mL) chopped fresh parsley or cilantro

Directions:

• Preheat the grill to medium heat (about 350°F/180°C).
• Cut 1/2 inch (1 cm) off the stem end of each pepper. Remove seeds from top slices and seeds and membranes from bottom portion of each pepper.

TIP:
• Choose plump peppers with a square shape. They should sit level.

• Vary the type of cheese: try Swiss, Tex-Mex blend, feta or Parmesan.
• Add diced ham to the egg mixture.

    Thank you for this recipe! These look so delicious and if I use low fat or non fat cheese, I will be able to eat this…first day on South Beach Phase 1 and so far so good…these would be great for any meal. I don’t have a barbecue but hopefully they will turn out ok in the oven…thanks again!

    Having to make brunch for a lot of people, I wonder if I could make these peppers in an oven instead?

      Not sure how they would turn out but you can try perhaps making a few for yourself to test first?
      Ps. if they are great be sure to let us know!! 🙂

    This is really a different grilled pepper recipe. Eggs are a unique way to fill one. Never heard or seen of this before. But all the cheese really is the kicker! Just love the sound of it and it looks delicious!

    This sounds and looks delicious, l like all the variations (ham, tex mex cheese, a little feta & parmesan) plus I would add Mushrooms, When it’s done sprinkle crispy bacon on the top of the egg and then Top it off with a cold tomato slice.
    Oh wow now I’m hungry!

    I would never have thought of this and it really is a great recipe. I don’t have a BBQ so I’d try making them in the oven, should work too.

    I bet this would work well with those little peppers I’ve seen at the store. Balancing would be the only issue.
